He claimed that she was alone and fine when he left her dorm that evening. He told the police that he got back to his apartment complex at around 2am and was playing EQ for the rest of the night. Max Sterling lived approximately 20 minuites from Carla's dormatory by car. Max Sterling currently does not have a job; he is a professional student from a somewhat wealthy family. No, Max simply stated that he went straight home after he left Carla's dorm at around 1:15am. Furthermore, the security logs and cameras in Max's apartment complex confirms that he arrived at the main gate at approximately 2:05am. Max currently drives a red, 4-door 2004 BMW. Max plays A level 70 Iksar Shadowknight in EQ. Max willing submits to a laytex residue test wtih negative results; there were no residue found on Max's hands. Max met Carla at a charity function where Carla was doing voluneteer work. Max met Betty at Delta Omega Kai sorority party. INQUIRY: Max, James Van Dyne and Paul Jackson's alibis at time of second murder. Max was at home alone playing EQ. Activity records from SoE headquaters indicated that Max was logged on from 11pm till 5am playing a level 1 rogue. The residential distance between Carla and Max was about 15 miles. The residential distance between Betty and Max was about 12 miles. Action: Check security logs and cameras at the complex where Max lives, to see if his car left/returned during that time, or before or after. The security logs that was retrieved from the apartment complex for that day indicated that Max had used his car at 10am and returned at 5pm. Since then, car was not moved from its assigned parking spot for the rest of the evening. ACTION: Retrieve any chat logs from SOE that Max may have created on his Level 1 Rogue. A record of all chat activity was retrieved for Max's level 1 rogue, but there wasn't very much; and certainly not enough to justify a warrant for a phone tap. The few chat activity for that particular night is listed in the following: - Galic Shadowhand: Hello, I'll buy those Kylong Shinguards of yours if you reduce the price to 3K. - Acorncupcake Butterfly: Hi Hun, how are you doing tonight?? /Hugs - Acorncupcake Butterfly: I guess you're AFK, send me a tell or give me a call when you can. Maybe we can go do something. - Acorncupcake Butterfly: I'm going to camp for a bit, call me!! /hugs - Raydiance Alive: Hi Sweetheart!! /Hugs - Elizabetha: Hi there!!! Send me a tell when you can. EVENT: Latest headlines from the meda: "Senator's son retains high profile lawyer, Rodney Cockran, in connection to campus slayings." INQUIRY: Would it be possible for someone to enter or exit Max's apartment without using the door? Yes, you can exit or enter Max's apartment via the 2nd story porch. The climb up or down wouldn't be difficult; neither is the climb over the 7ft wall that surrounds the apartment complex. However, the security cameras would of recorded anyone trying to climb any portion of the 7 foot wall. In addition, there is also a guard at the front gate that would note any one going in and out of the complex. ACTION: Check the apartment's security logs, and check if Max is telling the truth. Also see if anyone came inside the apartment when he was there. The apartment security logs indicated that Max did not leave the complex via car; his car was remained at his assigned parking spot during the entire night. The guard at the front gate also stated that he did not see Max leave the complex on foot and that someone by the name of Summers had paid him a visit that evening. Inquiry: Is it possible to obtain a list of all the girlfriends Max, James, and Paul have had or girls they've slept with? Not really. Max doesn't really remember (due to sheer volume). James had a few relationships; but only the relationship with Cindy was intimiate. Paul has been only in a couple of relationships; none of them were intimiate. INQUIRY: Anyone remeber what kind of shoes/clothes Max was wearing durring the interviews(goddesd only knows how many now) Max wore some trendy, high priced, name brand outfit that would of cost a week's pay on your salary. Interviews: ACTION -- Interview Max to find out particulars of his route and anything unusual that may have happened during his trip home. Attempt to correlate his story to actual traffic records for the night in question. Attempt to reconcile the differences in time (ie, Max should have been home at a much earlier hour if it was only a 20 minute drive -- did he switch time zones, was it day light savings time, was there an accident on the route, or did he actually leave Carla's at 1:40am? Max's Interview: Look man, I've told the cops everything I know. But because I want the scum who did this caught, I'm gonna tell you guys one more time. Anyways, like I said, I Carla and I went out for a few drinks and had a few laughs. I took her home sometime after midnight and spent a little time with her. After that, I left her room and drove straight home and logged on a computer game for the rest of the night. I didn't see anything on my way to the car and I drove the usual route home. (Max gives his driving route that would equate to 20 minutes of driving time.) And as far as me taking so long to get home; well dude, have you've tried walking from the dorms to the parking lot lately? It's a good 5 minute hike. Analysis: As far as traffic conditions were concerned, there were no accidents reported along the route taken by Max. Also, upon further research, it would of taken anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes for an average person to walk to the parking lot from Carla's dorm and another 3 minutes to walk from Max's assigned parking spot to his apartment. INTERVIEW: Interview Max about Carla's sexual preference. Does she actively do/like rough and/or tie-up sex. MAX'S INTERVIEW: Look, I'm a straight meat and potatoes man; I'm usually not into bondage and stuff like that. But Carla, she's....well....she's a freak of nature. Yeah, she may look all sweet and innocent on the outside and all; but in bed, she is like...man....a sexual freak. She would ask me to tie her up and stuff while we have sex. Sometimes with handcuffs; but most of the time, she likes the feel of leather. As for rough sex? Well, she did like it rough, but she never asked me to hit or beat her in anyway; not that I would anyway. Like I said, Carla was a freak in bed. INTERVIEW: Question Max again about his "true" whereabouts the night of the second murder, with chat log proving he was not activaly playing EQ and thus his claimed alibi being false!! MAX'S INTERVIEW: Look man, are you accusing me of murdering both Carla and Betty?!? You guys have no compassion whatsoever. Its bad enough that I have to deal with the death of two of my friends; but now I'm being accused of being the University Star murderer? Anyway, I told you already where I was at last night. I was at home playing EQ and watching TV. Yeah, I know that SoE gave you logs saying that I was not actively playing; but the fact of the matter is that I was home. And if you think I'm lying, then check the apartment security logs; it'll show you that I didn't leave my apartment since I got home from school. So if you want to charge me, then roll the dice and charge me. Frankly, I seriously don't think you know who you are dealing with; I can have you busted down as a donut eatting meter maid without even blinking an eye. So until then, I'm not going to answer any more of your questions without my lawyer. ACTION: Ask Max if he has any other ex girlfriends. If he refuses to answer, ask Paul and James. Max, under the advisement of his new high profile lawyer Rodney Cochran, refuses to answer this question because it is not relevant to the current investigation. ACTION: Tell Max Sterling if he wants to prove his innocence, he will have to answer these questions: "Why did you take such a long time driving to your apartment when you left Carla Towne's room? You said you made no stops. You left Carla's apartment at 1:15 AM, and entered your apartment at 2:05 AM. The walks from Carla's room to your car, and from your car to your apartment are 8 minutes total, and that's being generous. The route you described would take 20 minutes to drive. That leaves 22 minutes. What happened during those 22 minutes?" "Who is Summers? Why did she visit your apartment? What did you do with her when she was at your apartment?" Use a lie detector on him when he is answering these questions, if possible. GM NOTE: A polygraph test is only limited to questions with "Yes" or "No" answers, thus a lie detector is not an option in this instance. Max, with Rodney Cochran (his high profile lawyer) by his side, later admits that he made a quick stop at Phi Kappa Phi soriety house to say hi to all the party goers. He didn't mention this fact because he didn't think it was relevant; after all, the soriety house was enroute to his apartment complex. But after spending several minuites driving up and down the area trying to find a parking spot, he gave up on the idea and decided go home. Max also tells you that Summers (Jamie Summers) is a friend of his and that he asked her to come over. He felt that he needed someone to talk to that night; especially after what has been happening. Name: Jamie Summers Age: ? Occupation: ? Additional information: Carla’s friend. Jamie Summers stated that she was alone in her room at Phi Kappa Phi soriety house during the time of the murder. No one can really confirm her story because no one really remembers; there was a party at Phi Kappa Phi during the time of the murder. INQUIRY: Did Jamie, Carrie, or Lisa know Betty and, if so, what was their relationship with her? No, none of them knew Betty prior to her murder. At the most, they only know her in passing during various Greek events. Jamie is from Miami, Florida. No, none of the girls play computer games. Interviews: Jamie Summers (Carla's Friend) Interview: Yes, I knew both Carla and Max. The two of them has been going out for like forever now. The two of them seem happy together and I've never seen them fight. It's really sad, you know; Carla was a really sweet girl. I can't imagine who would want to hurt her. ACTION: Interview Jamie to determine where she was on the night Betty was murdered. Also, try to find out what her relationship and interest with Max REALLY was. (they were flirting after all) JAMIE'S INTERVIEW: I was with Max that night. I had talked to Max earlier that day at school and know that he's been under a lot of emotional stress. Poor thing, was really an emotional wreak after Carla's murder. Anyway, he called me up around 7ish or so and asked if I could come over because he wanted to talk. I asked him if he wanted to go out and talk, but he said that he wanted to keep a low profile because he thinks that the cops think that he had something to do with Carla's murder. So, I drove over to his apartment and I was with him for most of the night talking. As for Max and I, well, he is definitely cute; but the two of us are just friends. I mean, sure I went out with him a couple of times; but things didn't really work between us to make it a permanent relationship. Besides, how can he possibly be interested in me; especially when he can have any woman on campus? Name: Carrie Bryne Age: ? Occupation: ? Additional information: Carla’s friend. Carrie stated that she was at her apartment with Lisa during the time of the murder. INQUIRY: Did Jamie, Carrie, or Lisa know Betty and, if so, what was their relationship with her? No, none of them knew Betty prior to her murder. At the most, they only know her in passing during various Greek events. No, none of the girls play computer games. Interviews: Carrie Bryne (Carla's Friend) Interview: I knew Carla, but I don't really know Max, though. Carla introduced Max to me a few weeks ago in a Phi Kappa Phi party; you know the one she is a member of? Well, the guy is definitely cute; but he kinda gave me the creeps. I mean, he was trying to pick me up even though he was with Carla; talk about rude. Anyways, I never told Carla about it because I didn't want to get her feelings hurt. She is really nice you know and did a lot of things for the community and other people. INTERVIEW: Ask Carrie Bryne is she has a boyfriend and who it is ? CARRIE'S INTERVIEW: A boyfriend, well, are you planning to ask me out? Well, to answer to your question, I am currently not in a committed relationship; if that's what you mean. But don't get me wrong, I do date and I am seeing several guys from the campus at the moment. But nothing that could be called as being a "boyfriend". I guess I just like being single too much. Name: Lisa Hayes Age: ? Occupation: ? Additional information: Carla’s friend. Lisa Hayes lives in a dorm on the 3rd floor of the same dorm complex as Carla. Lisa stated that she was staying with Carrie at her apartment during the time of the murder. Lisa was in her dorm room during the time of the new murder.

I....I still can't believe <sob> that she's dead. I mean....<sniff> who would do such a terrible thing to <sob> a wonderful girl like her? I mean, she was a <sniff, sniff> kind and <sob> caring person. And when she told me <sniff> that she was going out with Max, I was so happy for her. <sniff> She really did find herself a gold mine when she found someone as good looking and rich like Max. INTERVIEW: Ask Lisa Hayes if she has a boyfriend and who it is? / First- Determine the current state of her relationship with Carla Towne. Second- Determine when she met Max Sterling and how ell she knows him. Get her to tell everything she knows about Max. LISA'S INTERVIEW: No, I currently don't have a boyfriend right now. I kind of like being single and don't really want to deal with all the emotional problems that comes with having a relationship; I've been hurt too many times by jerks. And as for my relationship with Carla? We were best friends since we were kids and we pretty much did everything together. We both grew up and attended the same high school in Virginia and she was practically a sister to me. As for Max, well, Carla first introduced him to me about a month ago when she invited me out for coffee. When I first saw Max, I was so happy for Carla because he was just so cute. I mean, the guy look like John F Kennedy Jr, Brad Pitt, and Johnny Depp all rolled up into one. And to top it off, the guy was rich; so Carla really hit it big. But most of all, Max was really nice. He drove me home on several occasions and even took me out to dinner a few times. And did Carla know about Max taking me out to dinner and stuff? Of course she did, the two of us don't keep secrets from each other and she wasn't jealous at all. After all, Max and I are just friends; he's almost like a brother to me. Name: James Van Dyne Age: ?

In fact, both of them said that they wouldn't be surprised if Max had slept with half the women on the campus. James tells you that Max loves women too much to hurt them and that he is always a ladies man. And Paul said that he has seen Max flirting with Jamie Summers on a few occassions when he was still with Carla. Inquiry: Is it possible to obtain a list of all the girlfriends Max, James, and Paul have had or girls they've slept with? Not really. Max doesn't really remember (due to sheer volume). James had a few relationships; but only the relationship with Cindy was intimiate. Paul has been only in a couple of relationships; none of them were intimiate. Interviews: James Van Dyne (Max's Friend) Interview: Yeah, Max and I are buds; and he's a good guy. It's really a shame tho, I feel for the guy. I mean, how would you feel if the woman you were dating suddenly got killed the same night after you dropped her off? Pretty lame if you asked me. And as for Carla? Well, all I know was that Max was doing her...er...I meant dating her. They have been together for like almost a month now. And you know what? I think Carla was the one for Max because he doesn't stick with one gal for very long - if you know what I mean. But, to tell you the truth, if I was with someone as hot as Carla, I wouldn't go looking for any other. Name: Paul Jackson Age: ? Occupation: ? Additional information: Max’s friend.

Interviews: Paul Jackson (Max's Friend) Interview: I saw Max last night in the bar with Carla. Max saw me and came over to chat for a few; and that was it. Oh, we didn't talk about anything special, really; just the usual stuff like women, video games, and sex. You know, the usual guy stuff. Anyways, the two of them looked pretty happy to me and I also saw them leave together; and that was the last time I saw Carla. Name: Karen Wilson Age: ? Occupation: ?

Karen Wilson states that she did not have intimiate knowledge of Betty's sexual activities.

And according to Karen, Betty had told her that the cords were left over from her move when she had used it to tie the boxes to her car. Karen said that she didn't think much of it at the time, but she did find it odd that the cords were cut short; too short to be used as moving cords. Needless to say, Karen threw them away.

Ask if she and Cindy were from Texas and, if so, how many other people would have known this? JOANN'S INTERVIEW: Well, Cindy and I were sisters; and yes, we were both from Texas. I know Cindy didn't have a boyfriend, but she was seeing this one guy, named James, for a spell. As for how long she was seeing him? I don't really remember; maybe a couple of weeks? I think the two of them recently split up, but I'm not sure. She didn't really talk about her personal relationships with guys. And as for Max? You're talking about Max Sterling, right? Wow, now there's a name from the past. Yes, I was seeing him at the end of my senior year in UoC. If I remember right, he was a stud muffins from a pretty darn rich family. Too bad he didn't stick around, that man was fine. Anyways, I'm not sure if my sister was seeing him. I know that I had introduced him to her at one point. So she might have been seeing Max in the past. But like I said, I don't really know, Cindy didn't really talk about her personal relationships. REQUEST: Ask JoAnn if she knew if Cindy Lewis was into any kinky or bizarre that would explain the "odd marks" on her wrists and ankles. if cindy say any about strange person(s) coming by her house in the last few days?

And yes, sometimes the roleplaying involves Jennifer or Jeff being tied. And as far as anyone strange coming by the house? He states that he haven't noticed anything unusual around the apartment complex. The only thing that caught his attention one night was when a car had waited outside the apartment gates until it can enter the complex by following a resident who openned the gate. But, then again, he dismissed it because that sort of thing happens quite frequently; especially when there are people visiting the various tenants in the complex.
